Sometimes i like to brag i skipped 2 grades, never graduated from high school, and started college at Johns Hopkins when i was 16. Then of course i meet folks like Andrew Chen who graduated when he was only 14 (think he started at 12), has helped create a very successful startup, was an entrepreneur-in-residence at MDV, and i realize... um, i ain't all that.
As further evidence of me playing Salieri to Andrew's Mozart (sans poisoning, tho i do lay claim to Patron Saint of Silicon Valley Mediocrity), i am compelled to point out Andrew's latest masterpiece "The First 6 Steps to Homegrowing Basic Startup Analytics".
While i weakly hope my Startup Metrics for Pirates lays down some basic fundamentals, i do not even begin to delude myself my simple melody can approach Andrew's 16-part symphonic grandeur, with both strategy & tactics laid out in brilliant & comprehensive detail.
Andrew: You Da Man.
